San Silvestro & Another Italian Feast Day...
San Silvestro, or Saint Sylvester as known in English, is what the Italians know December 31st for. The Pope who served from 314-335 who died on December 31st is remembered on the last feast day of the year. Fireworks, partying and feasting might be a new years eve tradition, but here the coincidence that marks this saints anniversary (since the birth of the Gregorian calendar) couldn't be more fitting. Because of this coincidence of special year ending date, many European countries also name this new years eve day as San Silvestro (using variants of the name depending on the country)
During the reign and papacy of San Silvestro not only were many beautiful churches built, but Saint Sylvester is said to have healed the Emperor Constantine the Great of leprosy.
The tomb of San Silvestro can be found in Rome at the Catacomb of Prescilla.
The architect of the church of San Silvestro, Francesco da Volterra built this in 1591 - 1601 and can be found in Piazza San Silvestro, Roma.
